By CCN: As widely reported, Amazon vastly scaled back its plans to build in New York City. While they planned to bring as many as 25,000 jobs to Queens, building a large campus and even funding local public education, they’re now reportedly developing a relatively small distribution center. The center in Woodside, Queens, will provide about 2,000 new working-class jobs.
Amazon is still looking to have a headquarters in New York, but it has reportedly chosen Manhattan over Queens. These reports are unconfirmed but based on apparently reliable sources.
